This enjoyable ride should appeal to Alice Cooper's original fans, as well as those who came to him via the performers he influenced.
This competent but underwhelming portrait of the 70s/80s rock star sticks to the usual wave-graph structure of a thousand other rock bio-docs ...
The familiar arc is fueled by a potent theme that drove the persona that made him a millionaire: Good vs. Evil. If only the movie were as potent as that theme.
The story is a familiar one, the vintage clips are great, and if you like Alice Cooper, you'll love it.
Something like a cinematic Wikipedia entry, Super Duper Alice Cooper re-establishes the already familiar story of the rocker, but never stops long enough at any moment to get any real meaning out of it.
Cooper proves a genial, voluble rock idol, even if he does admit to swapping sex and drugs for golf.
Telling Alice Cooper's story through archival footage of his career, Scott McFadyen directs a very good documentary about this iconic rock singer. The narration is terrific, and the way the archival footage is put together is what makes this film unique. This is a very different documentary in the regard, and it's engaging in a way, while keeping you intrigued because the footage is terrific, and it shows the rise of Alice Cooper as a hard rock, heavy metal icon. From his rise to his bout with addiction to his recovery, Super Duper Alice Cooper is an accomplished film, one that should be seen by Cooper's fans as well as metal and rock fans alike. What makes this film different than most documentaries is the fact that, like I said earlier, uses archival footage, pictures to tell the story of Alice Cooper, some viewers may find this one a bit odd, due to the fact that it's a story told exclusively with archive footage. Nonetheless to those looking for a well crafted film about a rock legend, Super Duper Alice Cooper is a fine film worth seeing if you enjoy the genre of music documentaries and are a fan of Alice Cooper. What makes Alice Cooper standout in the rock/heavy metal world is the fact that he is one of the most down to earth musicians in the genre, and for that he is also one of the most respected. I recommend this standout film, and though it's a bit different, the insightful narration from many renowned musicians and Alice himself makes this a highly entertaining experience and it takes a candid look at the career of one of metal and rock's finest entertainers.
